Eureka is an open access digital archive of research output produced by Saïd Business School. It has been established by Sainsbury library staff, and provides an easy and quick deposit service for academics and research staff of Saïd Business School. Wherever possible, Eureka provides an electronic copy of the full text with each deposit. If an electronic copy cannot be provided (due to copyright or any other reason), then Eureka will provide a link to the publisher’s webpage.
Eureka contains research by the academic community of the Saïd Business School. Types of publication included in Eureka are:
All current members of the academic community of the Saïd Business School may deposit in Eureka.
Yes, Eureka is happy to host publications from your previous institutions and this has the advantage of bringing all of your research together within one repository.
Eureka has been established with the following goals in mind:
To include your journal articles and conference paper in the 2020 REF you must deposit the author accepted manuscript in an institutional repository within 3 months of acceptance. All items deposited in Eureka also feed into ORA, the University of Oxford’s institutional repository, therefore meeting the 2020 REF requirements above.
Eureka allows for deposit of your manuscript without making the manuscript publicly available until the publisher’s embargo period. This is regarded as a ‘closed deposit’, so the bibliographic details of the research are still discoverable until the embargo period expires.
If you send the details of your publication to your departmental administrator they will enter your items into Eureka for you.
Alternatively, if you wish you can enter the items yourself in Eureka. A guide to depositing items with Eureka is available here. On whole, the complete deposit process should take less than 10 minutes, a minimal cost when compared with the advantages of increased visibility and citation of your work.
Eureka can only host the full text of your research if you have retained ownership of the copyright or if your publisher has given permission for you to host the full text in a repository. Many journal publishers do allow the authors pre or post-print versions to be deposited in a repository. If you are in any doubt the Eureka staff will check this for you. Details of publisher policies can also be viewed on the SHERPA Romeo website.
If the library is made aware of a breach of copyright or any other reason why an item should not be made available on Eureka, the item will be made temporarily unavailable as soon as possible. An assessment will then be made as to whether the item should be permanently removed.
Any technical correspondence concerning this specific repository should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
